The Psychoanalytic Study of Society. XIV. 1989: The Mark of Oppression: Jews and Homosexuals as Strangers. Paul Parin. Pp. 15-39.

John J. Hartman

The completed psychoanalyses of Jews and male homosexuals, members of subcultures in Switzerland and other Western countries, are used to examine the impact of societal rejection on the personality of individuals. The comparison yields a "deep-seated, multifaceted similarity" which Parin concludes is the result of discrimination, irrespective of individual success and "relatively independent of familial circumstances." Both groups felt that their analyses were doomed to fail because they were afflicted with an irreparable "birth flaw." Both groups had deep concerns about whether the analyst shared their flaws. Conflict intensified when members of both groups had to confront "the strange" in adolescence when they encountered discrimination by the larger society. The paper concludes with some implications for the understanding of reactions to anti-Semitism and homophobia.
